Pack a picnic and enjoy the views from our picnic tables that overlook Boothbay Harbor. There are restrooms and a gift shop, but no food concessions within walking distance. If you are bringing children, be sure to have them wear older clothes and bring a dry change. Our touch tanks are very popular and kids can get wet when exploring the creatures in the water. Bring a camera to capture those special moments at the aquarium. The weather in Maine can be unpredictable, so be prepared when you come. A weather report can be found here.
